    Which Republican forced Obama and Holder to decide that the banks were too big to prosecute?

    •  millions of liberals and progressives and so-calle (0+ / 0-)

      d liberals and defenders of democracy and freedom who voted for obama enabled it.

      they continue to allow hundreds of carnival barkers standing on every corner and stump in the country, right in your own neighborhood if you live in the USA, lie about and threaten obama all day long, enabling and empowering the banks and their high paid shits to spit on democracy, forcing compromise.

      get some perspective. there's a shitload of stuff that can't be fixed as long as the left ignores radio. there will be no major reform until then. do something productive instead of sniping at the best president we've had in decades. complain about republicans instead.

      but don't feel bad, there's a lot of you out there.

      •  Stop deflecting with vagueness. (0+ / 0-)

        Do you deny that Obama and Holder chose not to prosecute the banks for fraud?

        •  they also didn't declare there is no god (0+ / 0-)

          and they didn't prosecute the bush or reagan administrations, nor did obama get single payer, nor did liberals get media reform, or election reform, nor energy reform, and on and fucking on.

          •  The difference being that the decision to (0+ / 0-)

            prosecute is left completely to the discretion of the executive branch. No one else can do it, and no one else can decide.

            But by all means, keep on apologizing for the President.

            •  it's the same dynamic at work: even if he wanted (0+ / 0-)

              to how many of those battles can be won? could denis kucinich do it even if he wanted to? is that a battle that would have been easier with raising taxes on the 1% and reregulation- made impossible when a pack of ratfucks stayed out of the 2010 elections because obama didn't kick 1% ass when he marched into the white billionaire's house?  was obamacare more important? how far would a real investigation go? how many and who's swiss and cayman bank accounts would be exposed? where's that money coming from? how much CIA money is being laundered? maybe the geithners and summers might have been better able to give a better description of the size of the corruption and number of grand inherited fortunes involved and they gave him their honest opinions. or maybe they dissuaded him from getting wellstoned.

              i don't know, but i do know it doesn't matter who you put in there as long as the 1% can take free pot shots at him all day from 1000 invisible radio stations.

              until the 1%'s best weapon is recognized and challenged don't expect shit. blaming obama is a cop out.
